does taiwan customs forbid any food to bring in? was thinkin of bringing dried food and canned chilles to my taipei colleagues. TIA
No worries on the canned chillies and dried Chillies.Fresh Food-Veg, Plants and Meat not allowed .

One item that my Taiwan friends like from Singapore is the Gold Roast Brand - 3 in 1 Coffee. NOT any other brand. It now comes in a bag of 45 pcs. They like the taste and smell over any other brand and it is not available here. I always carry back 6 bags..

Anyone knows whether freego or guoguang bus goes to royal castle hotel or whichever bus lines are the nearest to royal castle??
Freego goes directly to Royal Castle (NTD140/-)-No worries. If you arrv late, then take the Guoguang bus(NTD125/-) to Taipei main Station and then a cab(NTD90/-).

anyone knows of any decent hostel for stay?

just came back from taiwan.
some places highly recommend u guys going.
nice scene- hualien-qi xing tan, taichung-puli,qingjing farm,hehuan shan
nice place shopping-shilin market (just go this one is enough, if got more time then can go wufenpu,but i personal feel that shilin is better than wufen pu,cuz wu fenpu only got cloths)
nice place to buy local things-jiufen,danshui
